Hi my name is Zayn, and I am from Assam. I am currently based in Delhi and a student of Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University - pursuing my Masters and in 3rd semester. I identify as a north-eastern trans person who is looking out for help to pay my fees and continue with my studies. I stay here alone, been brought up by a single parent for the past 13 years. My mother stays in my hometown. However, due to my identity I have constantly been made to face with violence from the natal family. I have been ridiculed and questioned at every point right from my political to social condition. I am working as an intern with two organizations currently, which are unpaid and have also been a contributing writer for various organizations like Youth ki Awaaz, Feminism in India etc. For the monthly expense, I at times also work as a freelance writer however, that is not enough to pay a hefty sum as my fees. The money that I get is barely enough to survive for the month. I worked as an intern with TWEET foundation, a management trainee at PK Vuroll marketing based in Gurgaon in the year 2018. I have also completed a fellowship under Urban India Fellowship. As a north-eastern person who also identifies as trans, the struggle to fit in has been mentally, emotionally, financially draining along with the lack of support from the family especially in a post-covid time. The expense of the course will be around 90,000 which also includes 90,000 which includes, film making, library, books and travelling costs.
I hope someday I could return this favour in some years by funding the studies of someone who is in need as I am today. Please help me.
Please help me raise this fund, to study, to work, to not accept oppression.
